DAY THREE on tha BEE...

HARD to see...gotta look for tha bee...:)  I've put in a comparison of the two surfaces so you can see what I did...The first one was darker and had a LOT going on...but, it was to get the surface covered with color that I wanted...The second day was to go over the surface with a more neutral color and THEN a FUN PART...which was to take my hand sander to it.  I tried several photos but you can't see the subtle nuances of color from underneath showing through...sorry...and then, today was to play around with composition and I think I'm happy with the placement of the big ole bee...I've put a very much lightened pic below so you can see the sketch.
I just noticed that the before is on the right and the after is on the left, but you get the idea...Keeping so much color going would have fought with my subject matter...but don't worry...with strong black and yellow there will be PLENTY of color and contrast!
I had to really lighten this so you could see the stylized bee shape I decided to go with...I decided to leave it at the bottom left so strengthen composition...NOW TO PLAY WITH PAPER and see what happens...this is FUN!
